india. we learned from democrat senator claire mccaskill that, quote, if we go too far with this, that is cap and trade, then all we are going to do is chase more jobs to china and india where they've been putting up coal-fired plants every 10 minutes. in sum, we have a slew of hearings in three unsuccessful votes on the senate floor. actually i'd say four because we rejected the kyoto treaty in the beginning. the democrats taught us that cap and trade is a great big tax and will raise electricity prices on consumers i would have to say in a regressive way, send jobs to china and india all without any impact on global temperature, so off we go into the august recess secure in the knowledge that cap and trade is riddled with flaws and that democrats are seriously divided over one of president obama's top domestic policy priorities. and we also know that according to a recent polling the american public is increasingly unwilling to pay anything, as the polling has shown, to fight global warming. but all this does not mean cap and trade is dead and gone. it's very much alive as demo
medicine. last week after working for years only with the generic drug companies principally in india and south africa, we announced our first big agreement with a large pharmaceutical company, pfizer, the biggest of all, has agreed to work with us to cut the price by 60% of the only drug we know that is affected at treating tubular chlorosis with people who have had aids for a long time. in other cases, all this medicine almost makes the conditions were spread half a million people die from this disease who have aids. the interactions of the madison and the t.b. medicine is often not good. the fact that they were willing to cut the price 60% will save a couple hundred thousand lives a year within two years. that is answering the how question. we tried to do the same thing in climate change where we are working with 40 cities around the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by retrofitting public housing, or big public buildings, or changing the street lights, or putting in new led streetlights in los angeles, or making ports more efficient, are working on better public transportat

and india, you have to have a strategy for economic growth and development in a periodic and serious challenges. our argument is that we want that build a safe and prosperous future, we need to create the most productive, most creative, must entrepreneurialism, pro- market economy that runs on smart an effective economic regulation. let me be clear. i believe that if you set out and say what would maximize the number of law entrepreneurs in america, there are ways to do that. what would maximize the number of businesses created by small businesses, there are ways to do that. if you said, how can i have the most continuous process of innovation, we know how to do that. it just does not fit the political elite definition of the future, which is high tax, big bureaucracy, and politician- centered. long term, we won the budgetary reform legislation. more than a dozen bills introduced to establish entitlement and budget commission's, but it all the legislation did was have the same all conversation with in the same old frameworks, you impact would not achieve very much. you end up with an

the crowd in take me out to the -- as we mentioned in the intro down load it from i-tunes. to india where five years ago the transmission and taxi driver's fiat broke. he lost every gear except reverse but continued to direct customers anyway backwards. for some reason people still get in the cab. five years later he is still driving backwards and has become something of a local celebrity. he uses this charming siren to alert those around him and con torts his body to get a look out the back window for the whole ride. not exactly a private ride for the passenger obviously nor comfortable for mr. deb, quoting him i do have frequent pains in the neck and i have had severe vomiting in the past. pain in the neck? vomiting? you, sir, sound like you're ready for midtown manhattan. polling plus comedy suggests that she is not the best choice for the republicans for president in 2012 if they're going for the wink vote. and this started serious and got worse, that gun owner at a presidential town hall is one dot away from the government manufactured waco guy. these stories ahead. first, best perso
the same health care and food as boys. in india, for example, girls are less likely to be vaccinated that be boys and are take on the the hospital only when they are sicker. the girls in india from 1 to 5 years of age are 50% more likely to die than boys their age. in addition, ultra sound machines have allowed a pregnant woman to find out the sex of her own fetus and then get an abortion if it's female. the global statistics on the abuse of girls are numbing. it appears that more girls and women are now missing from the planet precisely because they are female than men were killed on the batting field in all of the wars of the 20th century. so with a new administration in power and with a female woman heading the state department, how should u.s. priorities on women's issues internationally change? guest: the secretary of state hillary clinton is doing a marvelous job of highlighting the issue of women's equality around the world. one thing that we need to do in this country is the united states senate needs to ratify the united nations women's convention, the convention on the elim
the energy race with china and india? the answer is yes. we well, we have that in america, oil reserves throughout the west that rival saudi arabia's deposits, also ail in alaska, and other states. do the authors of cap and trade want to tap into that? no, we have coal reserves that have been referred to as the saudi arabia of coal. these are in kentucky, ohio, west virginia, montana and wyoming. do the authors of cap and trade want to tap into that? no america has that and more. we have the uranium, wind, solar, bio mass and hydropower. we have it all and can develop it in a responsible way. the authors of cap and trade don't want to develop all american energy resources. they want to start the energy race with china and india two laps behind as opposed to three laps ahead. the more energy america can produce, the stronger the american economy will be. energy development creates jobs, not just green jobs, but real red, white, and blue jobs. we need to keep all the american jobs we can. we need them all, and the solution rests on our shores. thank you, madam chairman. >> thank you, sena
. furthermore when you're faced with competitors like china and india you have to have a strategy for economic growth and economic development in and time of considerable challenge. our argument is if we want to build a system of prosperous, and free future we need to create the most productive, most creative, most entrepreneurial pro-market economy that runs on smart and effective economic regulation. let me be clear, i believe that if you set out, say, what would maximize the number of entrepreneurs in america. there are ways to do that. what would maximize the number of smaller businesses created by small business? there are ways to do that. if you say, how can i have the most continuous process of innovation, we know how to do that. it just doesn't fit the political elite definition of the future, which is high tax, big bureaucracy, and politicians entered. so long term we are going to need budgetary reform legislation. in the last congress more than one dozen bills were introduced to establish entitlement and budget provisions. but all the legislation did was have the same old conversatio

and is bound by. there are three nations in the world that did not sign. israel, india and pakistan. they are not bound by the treaty. but iran is. iran violated that treaty in a series of different respects, and iran has been sanctioned by the united nations for those violations. the sanctions are way too weak to cause a change in iran's behavior, but at least it demonstrates that iran has violated its nonproliferation treaty and responsibilities. the fact is that while iran has the right to develop electricity from nuclear power plants, they are clearing their natural gas. so if they want electricity, they could generate electricity for a couple of cents a kilowatt because natural gas is free to the. >> host: what is the deal? >> guest: they have no way to export it. liquefied natural gas plant would be very expensive and there are no gas pipelines running from iran to market. >> host: back to pakistan for a moment. a full page of photographs for afghans. a new test of democracy. the presidential election, their elections are coming up in 10 days, august 20. what are your hopes fo
china and india to act first. if america solves our energy problems first, every country on earth will beg for the technologies that we developed. if not, we will be begging for technologies developed elsewhere. america has always prospered by being one step ahead. we mass produced the car and american manufacturing built the middle class. we sparked the i.t. revolution and our high-tech revolution gives us high-paying jobs. today being one step ahead means developing the clean-energy technologies of future before anyone else does. waiting for china to address its emission problems before we address ours is like waiting for an opponent to finish the race before we start to lace up our shoes. china's not waiting for america to act. it's already implemented strong policies to promote clean energy. chinese fuel-efficiency economy standards are higher today than ours will be in 2020. they have already set a 15% renewable energy standard for 2020. and their government recently said they could reach 20%. and in 2009 china became the world's largest clean-energy investor. it plans to spe
of the u.s. government interacted in the handling of detainees. india, the interagency aspect is critical, as is how the various agencies related to the most senior officials in government. on the basis of physical and copperheads of review, the commission can then make recommendations which will help guide us in the future. this process is fundamentally about understanding where we have been, inrder to determine the best way forward. some might argue that such a commission is no needed. after all, president obama has issued a series of executive orders that chart a new course on detention and interrogation policy. as imptant as these orders are, i believe that something more is needed. it's not enough to say that america is discontinuing the policies and practices of the recent past. we must as a country take stock of where we have been an determine what was and is not acceptable, what should n have been done, and what we will never do again. it is my sincere hope that the commission will confront and rect the notion still powerful in our midst that these policies were and are a proper c
